Its a easy task. You need powercli installed on a machine from where you can connect to your ESXi/vCenter. Open PowerCli and run the ConnectVI-Server cmdlet and connect to your ESXi/vCenter server.

Run the command :  Get-VM | Out-File C:\Report.csv

I have got this code which works

Get-VM dev* | Select Name,
  @{N="CPU Sockets";E={$_.ExtensionData.Config.Hardware.NumCPU}},
  @{N="Cores per Socket";E={$_.ExtensionData.Config.Hardware.NumCoresPerSocket}} | Out-File -FilePath c:\users\kelly\vms.xls

Open in new window



however I need the datacentre name and I need them to be in separate cells in excel, please help!

right now in the excel spread sheet everything comes up in a single cell

Download the function export-xls from tech gallery and it would be much easier for you.

#=========================
# export-xls definition goes here
#then the following code:
Get-VM dev* | Select Name,
  @{N="CPU Sockets";E={$_.ExtensionData.Config.Hardware.NumCPU}},
  @{N="Cores per Socket";E={$_.ExtensionData.Config.Hardware.NumCoresPerSocket}} | export-xls -FilePath c:\users\kelly\vms.xls -NoTypeInformation
